From RSPB car park, along ATV track to gate in deer fence and then up directly to summit. Return following old fence SE towards bealach, down stream to 2nd gate and along track. Last Corbett!MichaelF28/04/2018
from the rspb car park along the upward trail until the 3rd gate then headed straight up to the summit through the crags returned the same waysteven morrice15/04/2018

Parked at Stronlachlar. Followed old military road to Corriearklet; completed horseshoe over Maol Mor, Beinn a'Choin, Stob an Fhainne; then returned along track to Stronlachlar.PaulineD18/04/2017
From Garrison farm, through the RSPB reserve and up the stream by the sheepfold. Purgatorial going through regenerating woodland - sickly saplings planted in deep hidden holes full of water amongst monstrous triffid-style vegetation. After a character forming slog, I found an ATV track, which was slightly less purgatorial. Better going above the deer fence, and the track goes almost to the top. Followed the track all the way back down, but gruesome going lower down (rushes, holes, tussocks, bracken). This route would be a lot better in winter when the vegetables have died back; or, better still, choose a different route from the many superior offerings described by others!Gill26/09/2016
From An Casteil down to bealach up steeply past some steep rocks. 2 cairns. Unsure which was summit. Descent down rudge and log boggy walk back. Great. Clear wuth giid views.Langbank 25/06/2016
CK SheilaS18/05/2016
From Ardlui ferry straight up the very steep side of the ridge to north of Stob nan Eigrach then south along ridge over Bein a Choin and three of the four Graham tops. Slow going in places on wet thawing snow so had to miss last of the tops, Stob an Fhainne to be sure of getting last ferry which I made with just 15 minutes to spare. Steep descent from ridge south of Bein a Choin to Loch Lomand very tricky in wet, thawing snow and navigating rocky outcrops, not recommended in these conditions, I think a line further south would have been betterdickscroop30/04/2016

Quite a difficult ascent from Inversnaidgman09/09/1999
from S A C D. A final massive drop down before final climb to top. 16.00. Gingerly downhill to road and bikes at 18.05. For 14m return trip to pier via north road. A water board van stopped to ask if we would like a lift as the bike man was worried. Accepted gladly after about 3 miles and very late return to pier. Without it, with the unexpected very severe gradients, we would probably still be pushing!arranc05/04/1996
